The Beatitudes offer paths to happiness perhaps because they are also paths to holiness, and each is distinct in the lessons it teaches and the grace it leads us to find.
High in the hills overlooking Galilee, Jesus Christ provided a multitude of listeners with a roadmap to holiness in His Sermon on the Mount. At the heart of this message were the Beatitudes, lessons designed to guide His followers through the highs and lows of this mortal life. But when the path feels too long and the journey too treacherous, how can we truly apply the words of the Savior and rely on His strength to carry us?
Readers need look no further than to the women of the scriptures for the answer. In Women Who Believe, follow the experiences of eight scriptural women who faced shattering trials of faith and endurance. Witness the ways in which they found strength amid suffering, and discover how the experiences of these sisters from long ago are applicable to those we face today. By witnessing the trials and triumphs of these strong women, we can likewise discover a wellspring of courage as we press forward on our own journeys of spiritual refinement.
